Founded 20 years ago by Dr. David Perlow, Any Lab Test Now boasts more than 100 centers nationwide where technicians administer thousands of standard lab tests priced to increase access and affordability for uninsured or low-income patients. Each location doubles as a draw center, where technicians acquire the specimens necessary for popular services—including glucose readings, HIV screenings, and urinalysis—before sending them to an off-site laboratory for testing.
Any Lab Test Now respects the need for discretion, so each HIPAA-compliant test can be taken anonymously in certain instances. Results are often available within 24–48 hours, and can be mailed, faxed, picked up, or transmitted telepathically for ultimate confidentiality. Though the team doesn’t divulge any medical advice, results can also be passed on to primary care physicians for further analysis.
The practitioners at Just Breathe Wellness take a holistic approach to wellness, adding aromatherapy to their array of massage options and offering clients self-care tips to help alleviate discomfort. The center’s therapists perform modalities that include hot stone and deep tissue, along with specialized techniques such as Thai yoga, which focuses on aligning the spirit as well as the body. Just Breathe also promotes wellness with personal training programs, as well as corporate classes and workshops.
Dr. Stephen Geller once dreamed of becoming an Olympic skier. In his freshman year of college, however, he decided instead to fuse his athletic experience with a newfound passion in podiatric medicine to help future clients conquer foot issues that hamper their daily lives. After completing his medical degree and spending three postgraduate years training as a general-medicine and surgery intern, he started his private practice in Phoenix, and shortly thereafter became president of the Arizona Podiatric Medical Association, among other organizations. Today, he administers everything from surgeries to fix hammertoes to treatments that prevent running injuries, and he also specializes in patients with diabetes.

Skeletons: Chiropractors typically work their magic through skin and muscle, but direct access to the vertebrae will allow them to realign your boney corpus, whether you’re preparing for a night of singing Cab Calloway in a cartoon cemetery or recovering from the arduous cycle of perpetually dropping from the rafters on a system of pulleys and wires.
As a former member of the medical field, Angelica Valdivieso, colon hydrotherapist and founder of Detox For Life, has spent the last decade combining her knowledge of medical techniques with her menu of restorative alternative techniques. Angelica and her team of hydrotherapists and nutritionists oversee closed-system colon-hydrotherapy services designed to flush out toxins and waste material, leaving clients with a sense of lightness not experienced since their last pillow fight on the moon. To further vanquish toxins from the body, Angelica and the team administer ear coning, a method that helps to draw debris and molds from the ear canal, and ionic footbaths designed to detox the body of heavy metals.
